New Windows 8 Personalization Images Emerge
New images have appeared of the Start Screen personalization options in the Windows 8 beta. In the images, posted online by TheVerge.com you can see shots from what they say is build 8175. They show that Microsoft are sticking to their guns on a background to the Start Screen that’s far less customisable than what we’ve been used to for years (though give it some time and Stardock will come up with something as they always do).
There’s no custom desktop image for example though there are eight background patterns to choose from. Then there’s a choice of nine colours. This isn’t what most people would call “customisation” but its a start and we could still see more appear by the time Windows 8 ships (making people writing books like me redo lots of screenshots!)
